Issue

The Kerala government has decided to set up Smart Kitchen project that will help homemakers to reduce difficulty in chores.

 

Details

  • The scheme involves giving soft loans for women to buy gadgets or equipments for their kitchen.

  • The loan can be repaid by the beneficiary within a stipulated time period. The state government, beneficiary and local self government will share cost of interest.

  • There is a belief that women’s participation in labour is hampered by pressure of household work. This has reduced their contributions in economy.

  • Mechanisation in kitchens through equipments and gadgets will help reduce burden and allow them to contribute to the growth of society.

 

Beneficiaries

  • Major beneficiaries will be the women members of Kudumbashree scheme. This scheme has been envisioned for poverty alleviation and empowerment.

  • No collateral will be asked for getting the loans under the scheme. The preference of the gadget needed will be left for the beneficiary.
